Benefits of a Career on the Railroads

The nation’s freight railroads have more than a century-long commitment to the nation’s service men and women, and this year continue to hire veterans at a robust pace. Nearly one in five of the more than 15,000 new employees freight railroads expected to hire in 2015 likely served in our nation’s military. There is common sense overlap in personal traits and skill sets of railroad employees with military servicemen and women. Our nation’s veterans have a disciplined background, with special capabilities and qualities that are uniquely suited to help keep freight railroads efficient and safe.
